Episode 42 – Building a Better Relationship with our Planet! (Podcast)

Summary of this podcast episode, Angela and Patti discuss building a better relationship with our planet and our environment.

During lock-down, it gave the planet time to heal in many ways; the air quality from pollution became better with fewer vehicles traveling. The beaches recovered due to fewer people visiting and the wildlife starting to populate. 

Where are you respecting energy?

Taking notice of where you respect, giving thanks, and reciprocating energy is an excellent example of being a good steward, yourself, your family, and your planet.

In the movement classes, Angela shares how to respect your body and listen to your body. This has been the easiest way for me to learn respect for energy. When we move together, we feel how we contain energy in the body and how we lose energy in the body. And in movement you can learn where you have habits in your body that disrespect your body or don’t listen to the natural flow of energy in your body that pushes the body. When we do the movement in nature, the elements of nature help us align and balance our bodies. And activity in nature, even just walking in nature, can show us how to be one with nature and respect it.  When we’re caught up in modern life, we fall into habits where we forget our own nature and own body, which makes us feel disconnected from the planet.

Reflection Questions:

What can you do to make a difference in the world we live in and your relationship with the planet?

What kind of relationship do you want with the planet?

What are your thoughts about air pollution, plastic waste in the ocean, and nuclear waste?

What can I do to support the environment?

When Patti is out camping or in nature, and I come across trash, I pick it up, take it home, and throw it in the trash. She remembers when I was visiting a friend in Hawaii, and we were getting ready to parasail, a woman was fishing out debris from the ocean with a net, and this man said to her, why there is so much trash in the sea it won’t matter. To her, it mattered.

Was she making a difference, yes, one less piece of trash in the ocean that day?

We would love to hear your ideas and what you are doing with improving  your relationship with the planet!
